There is nothing worse than not sleeping well! Feeling tired and irritable in the morning with an aching or fuzzy head. You cannot think clearly nor function properly.
Imagine how the quality of your life could be so much better when
- You are able to fall asleep gently and naturally at bedtime
- You sleep deeply through the night without waking until morning
- You sleep restfully with only sweet dreams
- You have no need to take prescription drugs or over the counter pharmacy medications to sleep well
The Western Way to Treat InsomniaWestern Medicine’s approach to Insomnia doesn’t work for many people. It is usually seen as an emotional problem, unless you are in pain or physical discomfort. Stress, anxiety or depression can lead to sleeplessness and some of the things that are recommended include relaxation techniques, exercise, restricting your coffee intake or having a hot bath before bedtime. These suggestions may work for mild insomnia but for chronic insomnia sleeping pills or anti-depressants are often prescribed.
Traditional Chinese Understanding of InsomniaBy contrast Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) offers a different approach to relieving Insomnia,by solving imbalances that you are experiencing at a deeper level. TCM seeks to restore balance within each of your body’s organ systems. One of the most powerful elements of TCM is the use of Chinese herbs to help relieve some of the following causes of Insomnia:
- Mental distress
- Improper diet
- Physical weakness
- Imbalance between work and rest
